Bayern’s Celtic Raid Ends in English Championship Move




Four years after departing Celtic for Bayern Munich’s renowned academy, Liam Morrison has found a new home in English football.

Morrison, once a highly touted prospect within the Celtic ranks opted for a move to Bayern when the German giants came knocking, eager to receive top-tier academy training.

While he may have received that Education, Morrison’s tenure at Bayern ended quietly, with little recognition that he had ever been at the club.

Last season, Morrison was loaned to Wigan Athletic, where he played under former Celtic star Shaun Maloney. His performances there caught the attention of QPR, who have now signed him on a permanent basis.

We can’t fault Liam for chasing the dream of playing for Bayern—such an opportunity is hard to pass up. However, at 21, he has made only around 30 first-team appearances. Had he stayed at Celtic, he was seen as more than capable of rising through the ranks. Now, he seeks to reignite his career in the Championship.

Morrison’s journey serves as a cautionary tale, illustrating that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. While he likely earned more money than he would have at Celtic, the cost was significant in terms of his development and Game time.

As we witness Rocco Vata’s move to Watford this week, it prompts reflection on two critical issues. First, Celtic must improve the pathway from their academy to the first team. Second, young players need to balance ambition with patience, understanding that rapid moves might not always yield the desired outcomes.

We wish Liam all the best at QPR.
